Chan Marshall comes out with a second album of covers, this Tuesday, January 22nd, 2008; this one's a tribute to the great vocalists who've influenced her over the years, backed by a full band of indie all-stars. I imagine you're already a Cat Power fan, so I think you already know how great this record will be, but if you'd like to come down to etherea and have an advance listen, I got a copy to play in-store before the album officially hits the shelves.
The album comes in two versions: deluxe silver-foil gatefold cover (LP and CD) with bonus disc of extra tracks and regular jewelcase version (CD only).
